Club Meeting
Friday, April 12, 2019, 07:00pm - 09:00pm

Club meeting, free and open to the public.

Location:  SAGE Planetarium, 38060 20th St E, Palmdale, CA 93550

Our speaker will be Dr. Ralph Bird from UCLA. 

Dr. Bird is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Los Angeles.  He works on GAPS, a balloon borne experiment searching for antinuclei cosmic rays, and VERITAS, a very-high-energy gamma ray telescope. Before working at UCLA,  Ralph completed his PhD at the University College Dublin, Ireland where he used VERITAS to search for gamma-ray emission from M 31 (the Andromeda Galaxy).   Prior to his PhD,  he worked as a nuclear safety engineer for Rolls-Royce Plc., working on both civil and submarine power plants.  He studies gamma-ray sources from galaxies to understand the processes occurring within them; searches for gamma-ray and optical emission associated with fast radio bursts, and hopefully finds dark matter through indirect observations.

Topic:  Our Galaxy Through Gamma Ray Eyes:  A View of the Extremes.
